The Cottar Safari tradition began in 1919. Nearly 90 years on, Cottar’s Camp continue to provide an unparalleled safari experience to discerning clients in Africa. Extending an era of luxury and quality, guests return to the original spirit and essence of ‘safari’, reminiscent of a golden era – an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance.
Situated in the Masai Mara, in an untouched exclusive concession bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo reserves, the area guarantees privacy and an abundance of wildlife. The camp accommodates up to 22 guests in authentic white canvas tents, which are spacious and luxuriously furnished with original safari antiques from the 1920s.
As Cottars 1920s Camp is based in its own private concession you really can do as you like each day but the main highlights are day and night game drives, guided bush walks, bush meals, sundowners, cultural visits, fishing, spring fed swimming pool and massages.
Cottar’s community development schemes and eco-preservation projects include successful construction of a school and financing teachers wages, supplying two local clinics with medical provisions as well as much more.Show Less
